Apple loving CEOs can rejoice as Brabus has unveiled the new 800 iBusiness 2.0.
Essentially an updated version of the original iBusiness, the 800 2.0 features a twin-turbo V12 engine that produces 800 PS (788 bhp / 588 kW) and an electronically limited 1,100 Nm (847 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, before hitting a governed top speed of 350 km/h (219 mph).
While the engine isn't anything to scoff at, the real story is the interior which is a technological tour de force. Most notably, the rear features two bespoke tray tables which hold an iPad 2 as well as a Bluetooth keyboard. Interestingly, the tablets have an app which allows users to control all the functions (radio, navigation and telephone) of the COMAND system from the rear seats. Additionally, the center console houses an iPad storage dock which conveniently recharges the tablets when not in use.
Elsewhere, there's a trunk-mounted Mac Mini which displays information on the roof-mounted 15.2-inch TFT display. However, when you don't feel like working, the monitor can show digital television signals via the car's DVBT receiver. Lastly, if your eyes are strained, you can relax and listen to music provided by a 64GB iPod touch with Sennheiser Noise Gard headphones.
As for the interior itself, the cabin is awash with high quality materials and premium accents. Highlights include two-tone leather upholstery, yachting wood trim and power-operated privacy curtains.
Pricing information wasn't released, but the iBusiness package can be installed on any S-Class ranging from the S350 to the S65 AMG. Of course, if you want power and technology, Brabus can turn any S600 or S65 into the 800 Biturbo seen here.
